Founded in 2010 Under the High Patronage of the Pontifical Council for Culture


The 12th edition of the International Catholic Film Festival took place from Monday, 27th of December to Wednesday, 29th of December 2021.

The event started with the intention of giving space to producers and filmmakers, documentaries, docu-fiction, TV series, short films and programs that promote universal moral values and positive models.

Because of our increasing success, this year we received more than 2,000 films. This year too the Festival took place virtually. Let's hope that 2022 will allow us to get rid of the Covid and to make our Festival as usual. We'll keep you updated.

Films in competition

The films in competition have a common element: they promote universal moral values and positive models.

Festival's Mission

Our Festival is independent, conceived and created by Liana Marabini. It was founded in 2010 under the high patronage of the Pontifical Council for Culture, and aims to show the Church from a new perspective: glamourous and traditional.

Mirabile Dictu

Mirabile Dictu (Wonderful to Relate, in Latin) is a privileged place of encounter for actors, directors and film makers, gathered by the concern they may have for the history and the values of the Church.

Our President

The President of the Festival, Liana Marabini, is a producer, director and publisher. She consecrates her work to the history of the Church, and is particularly concerned by the religious language and communication, something that emerges in the films she produces and the books she publishes.

Awards

The prize of the Festival, “Il Pesce d’Argento” (The Silver Fish, in Italian), is inspired by the first Christian symbol.
